They're vintage, apparently from 1985. A vintage sneaker sites says, "Though it seemed to fade from public consciousness as soon as it entered it, Converse’s The Weapon was THE shoe to have in the NBA. Released in 1985, it was worn by both Magic Johnson and Larry Bird for several years in the late 80’s, ensuring that the shoe would get no shortage of airtime.
While the shoe isn’t exactly stunning, it was a very popular among basketball players because it came in a wide variety of colorways, encouraging whole teams to adopt the shoe as part of their uniform..."
So the shoe is what, 35 years old or so? There won't be many pairs out there except in the hands of collectors.
